Life gets in the way

Bad weekend.  Screwball stepson is in jail, screwball daughter-in-law got evicted so we have two granddaughters running amok in the house and other assorted chaos.  I haven't had time or the quiet to do any recording.  But I don't want this project to start getting stale, so here's the music and below are the suggested lyrics.  If I get a chance to record my (horrible) singing, I add that as an update - but if somebody wants to start on this I'm making it all available.  Please sing a couple words before and a couple words after the lines you're doing, so I can blend them all together. Heck, you can do the whole song if you want.  The more of your singing there is, the less there has to be of mine.  That's a Good Thing.  Also, if anybody can do a soulful "Whoa-oh-oh" kind of thing, that'd be cool.  Think "Great Gig in the Sky" but more "cheery, major-key" and less "minor-key, passing a bladder stone" to see what I mean.

There comes a time when we need a certain kennel
When bloggers must come together as one
There are doggies frying
And its time to lend a paw to life,
the greatest gift of all

We can't go on pretending day by day
That somehow barry's dining habits will soon change
Dogs are all a part of God's great big family
And the truth, you know,
Alpo is all we need

[Chorus, variation 1]
    We don't eat dogs, we're not Indonesian
    Wagging tails make a brighter day
    So lets evict him
    There's a choice we're making
    We're saving poor Bo's life
    Its true we'll make a better day
    Eat a cow instead

Send him your heart, so Bo will know that someone cares
That his life will not end up as Bo Paté
Barry has shown us, by causing dogs to dread
Being eaten, we need to lend a helping hand

[Chorus, variation 2]
    We don't eat dogs, they're friends of children
    We like it when they bark
    And their tails are waggin'
    Dogs don't taste like bacon
    They don't go good with fries
    Its true we'll make a better day
    Bo can run free

Doggies are down and out, there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe there's no way we can fall
Let us realize that a change can only come
In November, when we kick out this bum!

[Chorus, v1]
[chorus, v2]


  1. Great work here Inno and sorry that I am not a singer (you are better than I, trust me).

    1. No I do not but can sing a heavy metal version of 'Oh Danny Boy' in the shower!

  2. I can already tell it will bring a tear to my eyes when I eat my dog.

  3. This is a noble effort. NOBLE! May you win a grammy! And may Kanye West tell America that Beyonce had a much better pro-Bo song than you.

  4. I'm in awe (kinda-sorta) at the lyrics. O! But I wish I could sing. I'd love to be a part o' this.

    1. Like I told Christopher - can you rap? Spoken Word?
      Stab yourself in the larynx with a darning needle and huff helium out of a balloon to sound like Bob Dylan?

      I have gsnap (poor man's AutoTune) and can make ya sound better than you'd think!

    2. Inno, stop it your killing me with laughter!

      But it does beg the question of what it takes to sound like Janis Joplin???

    3. Christopher - to sound like Janis, ya gotta eat a handful of pills and chase 'em with a jar of XTRA Hot salsa, while riding a roller coaster.

    4. I can rap... but what good would knocking my knuckles on sumthin'/anythang do?

      I CAN do a pretty good Dylan, now that you mention it.

  5. Love it!! I don't think I have anything to record with. But maybe Bouie could help on the chorus.

  6. I'll get on this this weekend.

  7. That looks great innoman. Can't wait to hear the thing.

  8. I love the lyrics, and am psyched to see the lines I contributed making it to the end stage.

    Unfortunately I live off grid and my old laptop/poor internet connection precludes me from singing along ( Black Rock Desert,NV we don't even get cell phone reception this far out )

  9. Hey Inno... just checking in. That parody is awesome, by the way.

  10. And on a completely unrelated note: Mariano Rivera...Mariano. Where have you gone Mariano? Yes. Today is a sad day in Yankeeland.
